Meatball Marinara

Meatballs (I bought mine from costco)- sauté them in a pan with onion and a little olive oil and salt and pepper until they are nicely browned.

Any sauce- I used a combination of Classico tomato and basil and Hunts chunky vegetable- simmer- add 1 tsp brown sugar if it's too strong of a tomato taste. Then combine the sauce and desired amount of meatballs.

Boil and cook pasta- drain water. Pour desired amount of sauce/meatballs over pasta and enjoy.
